A tie for seventh at last week’s Frys.com Open has put David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., and Matt McQuillan into good positions to maintain full-time playing privileges next year on the PGA Tour.
Hearn, who was coming off a tie for fifth at the Justin Timberlake event the week before, jumped from 108th to 102nd on the PGA Tour money list. The top 125 earn exempt status next year.
Meanwhile, McQuillan, a tour rookie this year, moved up eight spots on the money list from 140th to 132nd.
Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., also tied for seventh at the Frys.com event while playing on an exemption. It was the second top-10 finish this year on tour for Hadwin, who also tied for fourth at the RBC Canadian Open in July.
